Hi, first of all I love this idea, It's funny and clever and it works. Great job!
I have 2 suggestions for things I would love to see in the future in this extension.

1. Proportional ad replacement with "excerpt"
Often an ad will be replaced three pictures that take more space than the original ad did and gives no credit to the author of the picture. So I was wondering if it was possible to have proportional ad replacement and instead add an "excerpt" -with title and photo author and link to the original photo. I have attached a picture with my suggestion.

2. Second thing I was wondering was if it was possible to add pinterest as a optional source? That way anyone can create their own image base by building a great pinterest catalogue or choose something that someone else has created.

Thanks for a great extension!

    Hi David!

    As far as your first point, about the amount of pictures that appear, we're taking a look at reducing that (although for a while it was almost impossible to see anything in normal usage so it's a bit of an improvement).

    There is credit that appears when you hover over the images - this was included by Michael when he first created CatBlock as the original April Fools' joke.

    Currently you can use any set of Flickr images, so you could make your own photoset and use that, but we are looking into alternative services so thanks for the suggestion as we hadn't yet thought of Pinterest!

    Thanks a bunch!
